Jem! Jem is excitement. Oooh, Jem! Jem is adventure. Glamour and glitter. Fashion and fame. Oh wait, not that Jem, the cartoon character.
This Jem is different and a dude.
Melodic, uplifting and poignant, the latest songs of singer/songwriter Jem Warren will be released in a new full-length album Heart Knows How on May 18. A release show on that evening will herald the debut with a performance by Jem and his band at Drom in New York City.
A New York–based singer-songwriter grounded in acoustic guitar, Jem keeps a diary of his life experiences in the form of song. He poetically expresses his perceptions of his world writing about everything from love and nature to politics and religion. "There is nothing more fulfilling than writing a song and creating a sound that deeply moves me," he said.
Combining melodies reminiscent of Tracy Chapman with a smooth groove similar to Everything But the Girl, Jem Warren has a tranquil musical sensibility similar to artists like José González and Sun Kil Moon. "The songs on Heart Knows How reflect the longing and yearning we all have felt at some point in our lives," says Warren.
We've all been there, Jem.
